Instructions

  1. Evenly spray a 9 x 11, 8 x 9 or 9-inch round baking dish with oil. Alternatively, line a sheet pan with parchment paper to make free form rolls.
  2. Place warm water, yeast and 1 tsp sugar in a small bowl; let sit for 5 minutes or until active and bubbly. If using egg replacer, prepare according to package directions. While waiting, prep dough ingredients.
  3. In a large bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Whisk to combine. Next add the yeast mixture, eggs or egg replacer, oil, and apple cider vinegar to the flours. Blend on medium speed using a dough hook.
  4. Add the raisins and additional water as needed starting with a tablespoon at a time. Knead in your mixer for 5 minutes. The dough should be sticky to the touch. While mixing, it will stick to the side of the bowl while also form a loose ball on the dough hook.
